Wills & Kate Spend the Day at the Races


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise appearance at Cheltenham for the final day of racing.


They arrived just in time to settle in before the 3.20pm Gold Cup Steeple Chase. Watching the races from a friend’s private box, the couple cheered on Mike Tindall’s horse, Monbeg Dude.

Kate wrapped up in a double-breasted, dusty pink wool coat by Joseph that she was photographed wearing in 2008 before she was engaged to William. For today’s outing, it appears as though she had the buttons moved over about two inches, possibly to accommodate her growing baby bump.

She paired her coat with all-brown accessories including a £245 brown felt James Lock & Co. Ltd. ‘Betty Boop’ hat that featured a statement bow on the side, a matching brown suede Emmy ‘Natasha’ clutch,  brown diamond patterned tights, $635 ‘Zipkin’ knee-high boots with a side zip in ‘Cola Suede’ by Stuart Weitzman and £52 chocolate brown Cornelia James wool gloves with side bow (thanks to WKW for the info on the gloves).

Completing her outfit, the Duchess wore new Kiki McDonough ‘Eternal’ Citrine Cushion & Diamond Earrings (£1200).

Thanks to a follower on WKW for posting the above photo. It clearly shows that Kate is wearing her Max Mara animal print dress under her Joseph coat.
